Recent purchases

Happy Sunday, ladies! Sharing a few of my recent purchases including my dream shoes =)
Clothing items:
Drop Shoulder Colorblock Sweater: I love this sweater so much. The knit is thick and warm. Looks and feels expensive even though it's only $20. I got a size small but if you want a loser fit, I'd suggest going up a size.
Half zip striped sweater: I've always love a half-zip pullover and this one is great. It's quite cropped. If you're taller than 5'2", I'd skip this. It's lightweight and perfect for those Spring days.
Button up cardigan: I love this cardigan. So chunky and warm. Looks great with black jeans or leather leggings. It's 70% off right now.
A few pieces I purchased for our upcoming Spring break trip:
7/8 leggings: These leggings are incredibly soft and comfortable to wear. I got a size XS petite so the length was absolutely perfect on me. I've been very impressed with Old Navy clothing items lately.
Oversized puffer: I needed a puffer jacket for the trip and am drawn to the color of this one. As the name suggests, it's very oversized. I got a size XXS and still have plenty of room for layering. 2 large front pockets are great for storing essentials.
We're going to be in Las Vegas for a day so I picked up 2 dresses (one dressy and one casual for the occasion)
One shoulder cutout dress: This dress is so flattering. It fits so well. Fabric is stretchy and wrinkle-free. If you're looking for a fun and affordable dress, get this one. You won't be disappointed. Available in 16 colors and it's only $35.
Floral dress: This is my casual option for Vegas. The print is so pretty. The quality is decent. I love a good floral maxi dress and this one is perfect.

A couple of non-clothing items:

GHD Platinum flat iron: This was an unexpected purchase. My T3 flat iron broke after 3 years. I've had it since 2019. I was thinking about getting the Dyson Corrale but the reviews weren't that great. Also, I have the Dyson hair dryer and I wasn't impressed. I spent some time researching and decided to go with the GHD flat iron. So far so good. It heats up quickly and gets to the right temperature without over-drying. My hair is shiny and healthy-looking when done. Although, I try to avoid using it every day. I only use hot tools on days that I am going to the office. When I am working from home, I give my hair a break.
Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps: I save the best purchase for last. After 2 years of contemplating, I finally pulled the trigger on my dream shoes!! I purchased these last month when Saks offered $200 off your $800 purchase. I also had a $250 gift card when I purchased my Chanel 19. I basically got the shoes for 45% off which was a steal. I went with the 70mm version. They're so absolutely beautiful and comfortable in person.
